"Coffee Table Book for the Fashion-Obsessed...gorgeous, fashion-focused...Louis Vuitton eye candy awaits, courtesy of this lavish photography book.

“The house responsible for logo mania draws from its archives of campaigns and editorials for a master class in visual storytelling.” –Elle
“This is an ode to Louis Vuitton. The sizable volume certainly projects the brand’s import as well as status within the world of fashion. Everything from its size, to the paper, to the quality of reproduction is top shelf all the way. Not only does the book prove the enormous appeal of the brand, but it also provides the reader with a who’s who of photography of the 20th century. If you really read the captions and the text, what you find out is that the styling of these photos/images is equally as important as the image themselves and their photographers…the book will make a great gift especially to those who have an affection for the brand and its designers over the last 20-year period...There are fabulous visuals that most will have never seen before." –New York Journal of Books

The book is beautifully made and the metallic foils between sections add a really nice touch.
The book is divided into four sections; each one begins with an essay written by curator Charlotte Cotton, first introducing the history of modern fashion photography and then moves on to discuss the evolving image of LV campaigns.
Each of these sections is accompanied with a large selection of editorial campaigns by top fashion photographers. The campaigns are presented in a chronological order from 2014 to very early ones dating back to the 1950s.
The production quality is spectacular and all photos are large, vibrant, and crisp clear. All photos have captions with dates, photographer name, and the magazines they first appeared in.
There are no image duplications from previous LV books except for two or three photos, the rest of the book is completely new.
This attractive tome is highly recommended to LV collectors and all those with passion to beautiful fashion photography.
Is it too late to return? Or does it sit in the closet for all eternity? Or do I need to rip page 210 out thus making the value of the book the same as garbage? Please assist.
